What is CT Additonal Sinogram?
Computed tomograhy (CT) Sinogram is an imaging technique in which a contrast material is injected and rotating X-ray beams are used to create an image of an abnormal passage that starts or ends in one opening, usually on the skin.
Why is CT Additonal Sinogram done?
- • To understand the size and extent of a sinus (an abnormal passage that starts or ends in one opening, usually on the skin) • To study any proliferations arising from a single sinus • To guide the treatment plan for sinuses
Preparation for CT Additonal Sinogram
- Pregnant women should inform their doctor (and x-ray technician) as the radiations may affect the fetus. If needed, precautions can be taken to lower the radiation exposure to the fetus.
- Depending on the area to be imaged, you may be asked to wear a hospital gown at the time of the scan.
